Bean Hints & Nutrition:
Beans should always be sorted, cleaned and washed to remove any small rocks, etc.
The USDA recommends that adults eat three cups of beans per week for the maximum health benefit. Beans are naturally low in total fat, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol and are an excellent source of protein, calcium, iron, folic acid, and potassium.
Why Beans May Cause Discomfort:
Beans are high in fiber and complex sugars that our bodies have to work hard to digest which may cause intestinal gas.
To reduce cooking time and intestinal gas soak the beans six to 12 hours ahead of cooking to help dissolve the complex sugars. Drain and replace the soaking water as frequently as possible. Over time increase the amount of beans you eat to help your body adapt.

Tidbits of History

The waters of Caribou Creek wandered though what was to become the town of Kittitas, Washington. The Native Americans gathered a harvest of Kause, a breadroot; pleuma, a potato like tuber and camas root, their staple food. Wild game and fish were abundant. There was ample forge for “Kussin nan” the Indian ponies that grazed by the thousands.

Located on what is presently the town of Kittitas, two villages stood, both named Tc’ila’xan. Translation of Tc’ila’xan is “Standing by the side of your arm”—meaning the villages were not far apart. In the spring as Chinook winds melted the snow, one Indian village on the bank of the Caribou prepared for many visitors. The long House was readied for ceremonies at Che-lo-an on the creek. The warriors of the different tribes held council and engaged in sports of all kinds, gambling dancing and horse racing. It was a grand affair with singing, the barking of dogs, the neighing of horses, the noise of drums and dancing produced a medley of sounds that not many settlers had been privileged to hear.

The banks of Caribou creek now border some of the richest lands in the Kittitas Valley, producing rich timothy hay and a variety of other crops.
